YWLC is a 6-day program for high school-aged girls. You will learn first-hand about what it means to be a leader, a social entrepreneur, a peace-builder – a well-rounded globally-minded individual. Each day you will hear from expert speakers and you will engage in interactive team-building activities, and you will have the opportunity to create your own project, called the Take Action Challenge (TAC). The TAC will enable you to use your leadership and critical thinking skills to experience first-hand in a real world setting what it means to start a project with a vision, a goal, as well as fundraising, marketing, and communication. You will have 10 months to complete your project.


When you apply to YWLC, you are applying for a summer leadership conference which will take place 6 days in June.
